My husbands breath is horrible: How can I tell him?

I love my husband so much, and he really is the most amazing man. That being said, he has the worst breath on the planet. He brushes his teeth once a day, and on days he doesn’t have to work, he sometimes forgets. He is so sensitive though I’m scared of hurting his feelings. But oh my God y’all, it smells like something crawled in his mouth and died. HE IS SO SENSITIVE THOUGH. One morning I asked him to “breathe the other way,” and his feelings got hurt. How do I kindly tell him that he is killing me?! Lol


Have him go to the dentist and let the dentist tell him lol


He probably needs to go to dentist

He probably has periodontal disease

Ask him if he wants a piece of gum?

Tell him… honestly. It’s a hygienic issue not a personality defect. Tell him it’s for his health. Hes an adult. He should know better.

Just tell him it stinks and say its best to get it checked

Just tell him the truth!


He should mention it to his dr. Could be a underlying condition


Tell him to go to his MD and have them check his throat for tonsil stones.

Same lol I just ask if he wants a piece of gum. If he says no I give him one anyways

Just schedule dentist visits for the whole family.

Does he brush his tongue? Lots of odors are trapped on it? Next, have him ask your dentist, it could be sinus related

Try this…“babe your breath is unkissable…please help US by getting this addressed.”…my s/o eats so much sugar that yeast forms in his throat (gross I know) and his breath is gagable!

He’s your husband…be honest. You can tell him in a way that isn’t meant to be outright hurtful. It’s all in how you say it

He might have a bad tooth just say you have a bad smell in your mouth I think you might need to get your teeth checked for holes or abses excuse my spelling

I can’t help dying of laughter reading this :rofl::rofl::rofl: because on one hand if the only thing wrong with him is his breath you hit a goldmine ( especially if you read through most posts on here you’ll see exactly what I mean…) but on the other hand I know that really is an issue. Maybe just make a dental apt for both of you for a cleaning. If he has any decay, tarter, or plaque build up they can fix that! Or it could be periodontal disease which is also treatable. But really any of those things can really affect a persons breath badly.


Be honest! Tell him straight up. I do, my OH may feel uncomfortable but he wouldn’t know if I didn’t say anything


He needs ro floss his teeth and tell him to brush his tongue.

Theres no other way of saying it. Tell him and thats it. Because if not itll turn u off and thats the end of that.

Make him a dental cleaning appointment! They will tell him nicely and help him to get it under control with oral health techniques as well as mouth rinses especially for his issues.

Tell him to brush his teeth and suggest chewing gum

My partner had the same resulted in 3 teeth being pulled at the back

Tell him rinse his mouth with peroxide every morning before he brush his teeth. Leave in bout 5m problem solved.

He knows and he is sensitive because he can’t fix it. He probably has impacted guns or a rotten tooth. Book him an appointment and lovingly drop his ass off at the dentist.

I’m dying rn hahahaha! I’m so sorry

Make him a cleaning appointment at the dentist office they will educate him. He may possibly have periodontal disease which can cause really bad breath.

I just straight up tell my husband how it is :joy:

It may be a health issue or a bad tooth. I would suggest somehow mentioning medical and dental appointments. Say you need to go to, it’s a new year let’s do things right and healthy.

If you are his wife just talk to him. So people don’t talk about him.

Every morning samahan mo siya nag brush, right after kumain ihanda mo na brush niya. Do it everyday. God Bless :blue_heart:

There’s many reasons why this could be happening. Was it always like this or is this something new? If it’s something new, it’s probably a medical problem and if it’s been going all along why is it a problem now?

Just tell him. & recommend a dentist visit.

Could be many things. Halitosis, bad tooth, infection. Could be something further inside as well. Ask him to make an appointment because you’re concerned

Book him in for the dentist and explain that you think there might be an underlying issue, like maybe needs a deep clean or that there’s an infection somewhere. The dentist should up him :joy:

Stock up on mouthwash and all kinds of toothpaste , new toothbrush , floss etc.

Girl if you don’t tell that boy to brush his teeth and tongue and floss!

But on a more serious note, he may have tonsil stones or something causing the bad breath aside from not brushing. Honestly, though, it’s better you break the news to him than someone else. There is no “nice” way to tell someone their breath stinks, unfortunately. The offender will always take it super personal.

I’d just be bluntly honest. They have mouth washes your dentist can get you for that exact reason, even if he does brush daily. It isn’t something he should feel embarrassed about. There can more reason behind way it smells so bad

I’d have to tell him I couldn’t deal with that and have anyone talking about him behind his back just be like babe I love you and I don’t want to hurt your feelings which is why I’m saying this but you seem to have a funny smell in your mouth should be brushing at least twice a day if he smokes then three times a day x

Tell him his breathe stinks. We tell each other all the time if each others breath stinks. There could be an underlying issue causing her breath to stink

Why would you not be able to tell him this.

Probably needs a good cleaning

They have mouthwash to help with that unfortunately my husband lost the prescription for that because I told my husband his breath smelled so bad it would make an onion cry. I even left my husband for a while because his hygiene was so bad. Because no matter how nice or mean I was here wouldn’t do anything. Trust me I’ve tried EVERYTHING except making him use prescription mouth wash

I had a dentist who’s breath smelled bad, he had haleltosis

It’s usually a sign of infection, either in his teeth or his gums. It’s important to get it checked, an infection unchecked can eventually lead to health complications unrelated to his teeth.

Just tell him ! Better you telling him than other people avoiding him

Brush your tongue thoroughly

If you can’t have honest conversations with your spouse, why are you married?:woman_facepalming:


Hygienist here! He really needs to brush at least twice a day! A lot of bacteria can reside on the tongue so he needs to get in the habit of brushing that too. There’s a lot of rinses that can help with halitosis (bad breath) I would just get him into the dentist for a cleaning, there could be several things going on that are causing it. When you make the appt I would tell the front desk your concern but have it be anonymous to him and then maybe they can address it when he’s there. I see this ALL the time, it’s very common. Periodontal disease can cause the rotten smell you’re describing and it’s terrible but can be helped! Good luck!


He needs to scrape his tongue probably

Bad breath can signal underlying health conditions. He might even have tonsil stones which can stink. Just tell him.


Talk sweetly to him about maybe health issues you are concerned about or dental issues start somewhere with appts. Coukd be stomache issue also. Mean time buy mouthwash and mints. Not to taje the place of dental issues tho. You could secretly tell them when you call for appt to tell dentist to take note but plz don’t mention you said anything .

Hand him some mouth wash every day and tooth brush he is too grown to not do it


My ex would just say Go eat an onion. By that I would go brush and floss and mouthwash.

If u can’t even tell your husband his breathe stinks you have bigger problems :sweat_smile: also he should speak with a doctor if it is all the time

Just tell him you love him and you want him to be healthy so you guys can live a long happy life together. Ask him if it’s okay for you to schedule a dental appt. to check out the cause, and so he can get suggestions on what he can do to fix the problem. Show him it’s because you love him, not because it bothers you.

Use a mouth wash called “Smart Mouth” it works wonders. It actually gets rid of morning breath which I was skeptical of…but it really works. You can buy it anywhere I think. Amazing product.

Is he a mouth breather? A dry mouth can lead to bad breath or snoring too. To not hurt his feelings maybe do a breath check yourself when your around him lol breath into your hand with it right up to your nose and be super dramatic about it. Omg my breathe reaks!! See if he picks up on it.

I’m sorry but if you can’t tell your own husband his breath stinks without him getting hurt that pretty sad he is an adult not a kid. Tell him I love you but your breath smells bad please make a dentist appt. It’s better to hear it from his wife then from a stranger who will probably be rude or to let him walk around unknowingly with nasty breath.

Bad breath - Symptoms and causes - Mayo Clinic maybe this will help?

Omfgggggg. Tell him his breath stinks, and to brush his teeth and to also grow up if he’s that damn sensitive :roll_eyes:

It could be coming from his gut he could have an ulcer he might have decaying teeth go to the dentist

Just be like “hey sweetie y’all breathe is stanky wanna gobby”?


Schedule a dentist appt. could be rotten teeth. Get the gums cleaned as well.
